One Girl's Night In

I have friends. Female friends. All of whom talk consistently about boys, babies, marriage... they all kinda tie in together. One of my friends, we'll call her Jenny, has a boyfriend who lives 13 hours away and she only sees him every so often because he is finishing up his college stuff. She talks about him nonstop. And truth is, we're happy for her, unsure about him, and not caring about their relationship. When he does come to town she hangs on him like he is her hero and they can't be separated. My other friend, we'll call her Sally, was quite single with an interesting friendship with a young man here. Meaning, they have been super close friends for a couple years and both knew they liked the other and that the feeling was mutual, but he didn't ask her out. So one night they had this big fight and she said she couldn't continue the friendship because he was leading her on and then he asked her out. Or something. I don't know. All I know is that there was a romantic fight scene and all of a sudden my happily single friend is holding hands and seems so different.
I know a couple who are a year older than me and when you see them together you can tell that they are very close but you wouldn't think that they are smothering each other. They are friends with their friends, each have their own groups but they also hang out all together. It's great! That's the kind of relationship I want. If I can ever convince someone to actually marry me. My dad teases me saying that I need to hurry up and marry because the older I get, the less cows he gets. (That's coming from old traditions where the men would trade women for cows or something fascinating like that.) I hope I don't change my attitude or personality for a guy.
anyway, this girl is gonna continue eating the contraband chocolate bar that was not so hidden and watch "27 dresses". Alone.
Have a good night.

Really Odd Sayings That People Text or Say

LMAO = Laughing My Ass Off. - When people text me this I like to reply with "So what's it like to be bumless? It must make certain things... interesting, to say the least."

ROTFL= Rolling On The Floor Laughing -  wow, you have some major multitasking skills to be rolling on the floor and still texting.

"Yeah, no I totally blah blahblah blahblah" - You do realize you just contradicted yourself, right?

k, well. I had a whole lot more of these but my mind has blanked on me. I'll edit and update as they come back to me :P

What a Way To Die

 "Come on Chip. Let's dance."
"Dance?! We'll be crushed to death!"
"Oh, what a way to die!"

I think I was born in the wrong era. I mean, obviously I wasn't or I would have been born much much much much much earlier. But I wish I could live somewhere where I could wear a modest dress that still is quite flattering, and have a handsome boy come up and say "hey doll, wanna dance?" and then I'd coyly laugh and he'd whisk me onto the dance floor where we could tap a pre-choreographed dance that everyone somehow magically knows. That seems so much more fun than stiffly standing with my arms around a guys neck and awkwardly swaying for no apparent reason.
Maybe that's why I love musicals so much. The characters sing and dance and they always seem so happy. I believe that if everyone sang and danced a little more often, they'd probably be happy too. maybe not. I know I would. :)
have a good night everyone

This Post Consists of Many Subject Changes.

"Oh broken toe oh broken toe, your strength is so all-failing. You snapped like a train railing. I danced around, danced like a fool. and then I landed on top of you! oh broken toe oh broken toe, you caused me to go flailing."

Well Hello! I didn't see you there. Do come in. Sit down.
Today in my modern dance class which I do with 7-13 year olds... I fell. well not really. we were doing this thing where you go "step hop hop, arms swing to the opposite side, step hop hop, arms to the other side" and so on. I usually can do this. It is one of my tougher classes, but I pride myself on being only slightly less better then the other girls I'm with. Today I just couldn't do it to save my life. I don't know why but I sucked. Well, I kinda know why. I'm the World's 100,356th biggest Klutz. not really, I made that number up but that's not the point. the point is that I'm not that great at hand,eye, leg, foot, toe -- to sum it up, I'm not that great with body coordination. anyway, today I did a jump and came down on my ankle and I thought to myself "Sarah, that felt weird. plus there are 7 girls staring at you like you're a moron. Get out of their view and stop falling. it hurts." and then I went for the next round of stephopping and it hurt a little more, so I went to talk to the teacher. And that's when I noticed that my pinky toe is blue. And that I was trying to hold back tears. Now this surprised me. For one, I've never seen my toe blue before and for another, I don't cry very often and IF I do, it's cause someone has seriously hurt me emotionally. I'm pretty tough physically. So I don't know why I cried but anyway, I went to the bathroom and had my foot under the cold water and I couldn't stop my tears so I just cried. for no apparent reason. Which made me feel really girly and lame. I hate feeling girly and lame. So I finally calmed down and walked out of the bathroom and as soon as the teacher looked at me, more tears tried to fall. and then she looked at my foot (wow this is turning into a really long post and I haven't even changed the subject yet) and I told her I would be fine. Then a lady I used to babysit for asked me "Hey you okay? What happened?" and I said "yeah I'm fine. I just cal=me down on my ankle like thi-AHHHHHHHHH* thought really bad words here*) and then I was thinking oh my freaking goodness this is pathetic. So I went to the hospital where they taped my toes and told me it was broken and I shouldn't dance or really stand on it for 6 weeks. asdhfyeah. um, I'm a waitress and I drive a standard. This is gonna heal by tomorrow. So now I'm at home not icing my foot although it is up, and I get to watch dance classes that I need to actually be dancing in. YAY!! not.
My sisters raise rabbits. and because the rabbits are outside in cages and because we have been having -25 nights (tonight's HIGH is -17C!!! brr) every month or so one of the girls will come in the door and say "one of our rabbits died. It froze. Can we still eat it?" @PETA: we do not eat this frozen bunny. please don't sue us.  So apparently, back in december (like Taylor Swift! HA!) my 9 year old sister walked into the meat cutting room where my parents were. She was hold a frozen rabbit by it's back legs, thwaked it against the door and said "somethin's wrong with my rabbit." Now, I'm sorry to anybunny that has a love for rabbits ;) but you gotta admit that that is kinda funny! I laughed when my mom told me tonight.
The last subject is gonna be quick. today in drama class this guy that I'm kinda friends with walked up behind me, like RIGHT behind me- like lets-bungee-jump-together-okay-we-are-gonna-be-close right behind me, and said, Why are you standing so close to me? Anybody else and it would have been beyond weird. but for some reason, it was him and so it was funny weird. I laughed. And then I got into a debate with another guy about why I wouldn't hug him because he kept invading my personally bubble. I think I atomatically won that though, I mean, It's my space and my opinion against my space and his opinion. hmm... don't know why he thought he should start up that one. Anyway, I'm sure I've bored you all to a very deep sleep by now which means I can scream out the biggest, most important new of all!


what's that? oh nothing dear, go back to sleep.

Ideas That Have Gotten me Nowhere, yet Have Taught me Important Lessons

Okay, so substituting crazy glue for nail glue probably wasn't a good idea. I now have a left hand pinky with a beautiful (and crooked) nail that, according to the little tube in the fridge, isn't moving for a while. Great. Do you know how hard it is to type without your left pinky? On the bright side, I now know that crazy glue is NOT a good substitute for nail glue, and that fake nails are just really awkward, and if I've been a nail biter since I was five, maybe it's my destiny? maybe I'm just not a "pretty nails" girl. Too bad, so sad. It's funny, I was trying fake nails so that I could stop biting my nails but now I'm so worried if this will ever come off that I'm biting the nubs of my other nine digits. Ironic.
Another lesson I've learned is to NEVER cut bangs will your hair is wet. yeah, that made for some very interesting Christmas pictures a couple years ago.
Um, also, hiding your homework from yourself doesn't mean that you are hiding it from the teachers. They still expect it.
I guess that's kinda what my failed idea's have been. Gosh it's hard typing right now.
In other news today I found out that TOBY KEITH, GEORGE CANYON, and ONE MORE GIRL are all coming to Prince George! exactly 11 days after my 18th birthday. and I really want to go with my friend but I need to get the tickets now-ish if I want floor seats. I could be 3 rows away from him! (HIM being toby keith.) And 3 rows away from One More Girl!!!! Vancouver-ites and only the most amazing up and coming country duo on the PLANET! I want sooo bad to see them! I'm gonna go Petition God :)

Goodnight. (oh and please pray, wish, or hope for my nail to one day be somewhat normal. I'm actually almost worried about it...)

How disapointing was that Score?

Does anyone else watch hockey? I don't mean you have to be a fan, or even know what you are watching but do you watch it? Tonight Was the World Juniors Final game, Canada vs Russia. First two periods, Canada leads with 3-0. Third period, Russia ties up the game and goes home with the gold and a 5-3 win. Do you know how fantastic it is to score 5 goals in 20 minutes?! Seriously! that's a goal every four minutes. Now I have a theory that nobody else seems to agree with. Here it is.
If I was playing on the Russian hockey team.... actually, if I was playing on ANY hockey team it would be a disaster. But that's beside the point. Work with me here. So I'm on the Russian Hockey team and We've been studying Canada's game. We know that they are the team to beat this year (because they are our opponents at the world juniors gold medal game....) and what have we noticed about their playing habits? Well first of all, they play pretty good. Second of all, If they are in a good lead and it looks like they are gonna win, they get cocky. Third, the defense men can only play hard for so long.
So. Here is what I think happened. Russia played around with Canada for the first and second periods, Canada got a few goals and Russia made sure they kept their score at 0. THEN when Canada relaxed in the third period BAM! Russia hits them with 2 goals in 3 minutes. Now Canada is worried but hey, we still have the lead. Yeah, right. Until Russia ties with us and then sweeps us off our feet in the most unromantic way and takes home the gold. The only comfort I can find in this whole night is that I'm not playing for the Canadian team and therefore I am not the one who let down and ENTIRE NATION!!!! also the Canucks won. again. YEAH!
so. that was my hockey rant. And that's kinda all I had to say.
Have a fantabulous night! oh, and happy birthday to my little brother :) He turned 11 today. (you can smell it....)

Twenty Eleven It shall be.

So. I had planned on making a end of 2010 post but obviously that didn't happen. So instead I'll make a beginning of 2011 post. We brought in the new year with our traditional Family Movie Night. We invite some friends over, get an animated family movie, make sundaes and pretty much the adults drink and the kids laugh at the movie till it's about time for the countdown at which time we pause the movie and turn on the radio so that we can countdown with them. Tonight we watched "Despicable Me" and I snuck some vodka (which, when my mom realized it wasn't just orange juice, she downed in a big gulp...) and an grand time was had by all. Cops were heavy tonight when I came home from work. It was 9 o'clock and they were already doing road blocks. I got pulled over. I love being pulled over when I've done nothing wrong. I feel so good :D anyway, I'm gonna try to go to sleep because I have to work tomorrow and I am definitely coming down with some illness of sorts. So I bid you good night and happy new year.
Oh, tip of the day: After you've heard the 50th person tell you "see ya next year!!! hahaha!", resist the urge to smack em upside the head. trust me. It doesn't go over well. Just bear the annoying-ness and then use the nest 11 months and 30 days to gather up patience for next new-years eve.

good night.
